2018 Honda Odyssey vs. Toyota Sienna
When considering your family and finding a versatile and dynamic vehicle to transport everyone safely in, the 2018 Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna are both vehicles that should be front of mind. The experienced team at Honda of Bay County understands the needs of families and drivers in Panama City, Springfield and Callaway and will help to find the right minivan for your needs.
In this article, we'll explain each vehicle's interior features and cargo space, infotainment options and compare some of the standard and available features in each. Read on below to learn more about what each has to offer.
Interior and Cargo Space
Both vehicles can seat up to eight passengers, making it easy to bring the entire family along, with room for a few more if needed! When it comes to storing items, the 2018 Odyssey provides up to 158 cu. ft. of cargo space with all seats folded down. The Sienna can only offer up to 150 cu. ft. of cargo space with the same setup. That extra space in the Odyssey can come in handy when you have larger items to transport.
Being comfortable while in the car is important, too. The spacious 2018 Honda Odyssey offers 40.9 in. of front legroom and the exact same in the 2nd row. The 2018 Toyota Sienna, while spacious, offers 40.5 in. of legroom in the front and just 37.6 in. in the 2nd row. If you're using the 3rd row, the Odyssey's 38.1 in. of leg room bests the Sienna's 36.3 in. Overall, if you want to stretch out your legs, the Odyssey bests the Sienna in each row.
Honda Odyssey vs. Toyota Sienna: Infotainment
Both the Odyssey and Sienna come with a host of infotainment options to keep everyone entertained no matter how long the drive is. When it comes the touchscreen capability, the 2018 Odyssey offers an available high-resolution 8-inch screen. The Sienna's largest available screen is seven inches. The larger screen in the Odyssey makes it easier when navigating or interact with intuitive technology.
The Odyssey also makes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ technology standard on the EX trim and above. With this technology, you can easily link a smartphone to the touchscreen to make calls, access music and use the map function to navigate to a destination. The 2018 Sienna does not offer Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ on any trim.
The 2018 Odyssey's CabinControl™ feature is a convenient available add-on in higher trims. This lets you take control of the rear-seat entertainment and control temperature, ensuring those riding in the back seat are comfortable and entertained. No such technology is offered in the 2018 Sienna.
Another fun extra offered in the Odyssey is the available Wi-Fi hotspot, giving you the ability to connect a smartphone or tablet while on the road. The Sienna, on the other hand, does not offer this capability.
2018 Honda Odyssey vs. Toyota Sienna: The Verdict
It's clear when sizing up the 2018 Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna that both minivans have plenty to offer drivers in Panama City, Springfield and Callaway. But with more overall cargo space, the latest infotainment and tech features and long list of standard features, the 2018 Honda Odyssey is truly a family-friendly choice.
